  • ESB2008 (European Society of Biomechanics) First Announcement andCall for Abstracts

    Dear Colleagues

    It is our pleasure to invite you to the 16th Congress of the European
    Society of Biomechanics, to be held July 6th - 9th, 2008 in Lucerne,

    Drawing on the continuing success of previous meetings of the ESB, our goal
    is to strengthen the scientific basis of our traditional core topics while
    diversifying to include emerging research areas. Plenary talks and
    mini-symposia are planned to address novel fields in biomechanics research,
    and to provide valuable insight into the ever-increasing importance of
    collaborative research, interdisciplinary programs, EU funding opportunities
    and biomechanical education programs. The success story of the MedTech
    industry within Switzerland will be highlighted to bring you practical
    examples of translation research.

    Lucerne is ideally situated in the centre of Switzerland, in the foothills
    of the Alps. The conference will be held in the recently constructed Culture
    and Convention Centre, located directly on the shores of Lake Lucerne. These
    facilities will offer you a modern conference experience in the environment
    of a true architectural masterpiece. Lucerne is easily reached by all major
    transportation methods, and the city itself is compact and

    Further details about the conference, scientific topics and the abstract
    submission process are available in the following downloadable brochure:
